Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers


This morning the West Branch is higher than yesterday. The release from Cannonsville has increased to 1123 cfs. This is great news for a good section of the River System since we are still forecast for a few more days of 85 degree heat.

Right now under the current release the entire West Branch and most of the Trout waters of the Main Stem are in good shape. The Upper East is also Ice Cold.

Anglers should however avoid fishing the Beamoc Water and the Lower East for Trout if the water temps. are up near 70 degrees.

Over the weekend our guests had very good fishing. Our guides took full advantage of the Ice cold water and were able to put our guests into steady action. The Dry Fly action was scarce. The bright scorching sun and lack of any clouds probably is the biggest factor in their absence.
